    Jeremy clarkson has been suspended by the bbc for a fracas with a producer. And as a result they have cancelled top gear this weekend.

    Fracas. Word of the day. Lots of Americans over on Jalopnik scratching their heads about that one.

    I'm assuming the silly sod has gone and punched someone.

    classic
    option 1- sack him, lose millions of revenue
    option 2- give him another warning, prove how toothless the BBC is and "One rule for cash cows, one for everyone"

    fucked either way :c

    yea but how likely is it to be his fault ? i thought most of the top gear "team" were together for ages ? so that smacks of blame aportioning

    I think Gaffer means 'a' producer, not 'the' producer.


    I'll happily be the scapegoat for a say 500k payout.

    As Mabs already said, the BBC won't get rid of Clarkson, they'd lose millions of viewers and there is nothing stopping Clarkson from taking Top Gear with him to Channel 5 (under a different name obviously as Clarkson sold his rights to Top Gear to the BBC the bellend)


    Edit: petition for him to come back apparently https://www.change.org/p/bbc-reinstate-jeremy-clarkson

    How ridiculous of people to demand his reinstatement without even knowing what he did.

    Come on then @BloodOmen, justify that facepalm. I get that you're ok with his racism but a lot of people aren't. There's no way anybody should be getting behind him until what he was suspended for is revealed.

    Tbh I don't really care what he did. As long as he didn't murder someone I am happy for him to get a fine and get the show back on. I look forward to Sunday evenings when it's on, and they cancelled it so I can petition for him to be reinstated if I like. It's my right to free speech.

    Oh come on, what could he possibly have done? Racist slurs? If there'd be bans for everyone slurring racism on FH there wouldn't be many left.

    He fracas'd. Hehe. Must be even worser. ;)

    Sounds like a new model of Ford. Was going to say, surely getting into a car with a producer isn't suspension worthy.

    ..... o_O

    Should have let it run with May and Hammond until they sort it all out,

    He took a swing at the producer apparently, people don't just throw a punch at someone for nothing.

    Actually I think if you read his posts you'll find its the other way around, I've been ignoring him for the majority of his posts over the last few weeks, its him that keeps quoting/face palm spamming stuff. I think I've face palmed him once in about 2 weeks? if a face palm is a punch then @caLLous must be the Mike Tyson of Freddyshouse because its all he does.
